I increasingly feel that I don't have the dedication for 30 days of doing something like this, even for something I love as much as TV...

Previously... )

Day 19 - Best TV show cast

Probably Friends. While you could do without Phoebe or Joey on occasion, the show wasn't complete without them. Phoebe's craziness ("... dance around naked. You know, with sticks.") and Joey's hilariousness ("What is Joey's favourite food?" "Sandwiches!" "The name of Joey's childhood imaginary friend?" "Maurice!" "His occupation?" "Space cowboy!") really added to the more serious storylines we saw with Chandler and Monica and Ross and Rachel. They were the newest of the group, given that Ross and Chandler had gone to college together and Rachel and Monica had been to high school together, but the show wouldn't have been the same without all six of them.

Honestly, can you imagine a Friends series without Smelly Cat or Dr. Drake Ramore?

I didn't think so.

Day 20 - Favourite kiss

Oh my GOD, so many choices. I've managed to narrow it down to the top three, and a bonus kiss that isn't from a TV show.

#3) The Ready Room Kiss from All Good Things...

I STILL get swoony.

#2) Every single Willow/Tara kiss from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but especially the one at the end of Entropy.

Here's the dialogue that precedes the kiss:

TARA: Things fall apart, they fall apart so hard..
TARA: You can't ever... put 'em back the way they were...
WILLOW: Are you okay?
TARA: I'm sorry, it's just... (sigh) you know it takes time. You can't just... have coffee and expect --
WILLOW: I know.
TARA: There's just so much to work through. Trust has to build again, on both have to learn if... if we're even the same people we were, if you can fit in each other's lives, it's a long and important process and ... can we just skip it? Can you... can you just be kissing me now?

The one time in her life Tara actually acts her age, which is something that Willow, Xander and even Buffy get to enjoy now and again, and it's followed by the episode Seeing Red. Which aired on my birthday. Thanks, Joss. Really.

#1) Dax and Lenara kiss in Dax's quarters, from Rejoined.

The first real same-sex kiss I ever saw, barring a really lame episode of Roseanne. The kiss in Rejoined is just so meaningful, so poignant, and the best part about the entire episode is that it's not because they're two women that their love is forbidden. Here's the conversation between Kira and Bashir that explains the concept of "reassociation" and you can tell that the fact they're both women doesn't even faze either Kira or Bashir. (5m58s, but I love this whole intro.)

The bonus:

The kiss in the flower shop between Rachel and Luce, from Imagine Me & You. (1m23s)

What every forbidden kiss should be. Apologies for the cheesy music video, but there's basically no video clips of this movie anywhere. Note that I completely forgot this was from a MOVIE, not a TV show. Because I am clearly sleep-deprived.

Coming up... )
